It looks good to me too.
When I first spotted the title of this thread I thought it said "Vegans meat mallet!"  Why on earth would a vegan want a meat mallet I thought?
Ah well, senior moments I suppose.

If you are looking for commisions then contacting the Guild of Toastmasters may be productive. I understand from a friend that they are often having their little wooden hammers nicked.

Hi all
thanks very much!
baz/ralph, i used my router with a v-bit to cut the grooves. i took a leftover piece of mdf, made a hole the size of the mallett head, and hot glued it flush to the mdf. i marked out parallel lines spaced every 5mm, and used a straightedge as a guide. once done, i turned it 90 degrees and repeated. it is quite time consuming, i must find a better way to do it.
mark, i'm afraid to admit it, but i really don't know what wood it is. it is originally from very heavy crates, and the dark lines are due to oil stains. it is very hard and heavy.
